Weird Snowmen

Evil snowmen is a horror trope that had never occurred to me. But I'm sure it's in one Stephen King novel or another already.

Anthropomorphic icicles is another notion I was blissfully unfamiliar with. Can they really run far enough and fast enough to the north to escape Spring?

The Butterfly Effect

I hope every WU-vie's morning goes better than this.

Wolverine Soap




Even before a certain blade-wielding comicbook character pre-empted the name of "Wolverine," could it possibly have been a good idea to name your product after a vicious, pint-sized killer beast?

"Wolverine Soap--it will rip the dirt off your skin, and your skin with it!"

No wonder the pitchman in the ad below is working so hard to find sales reps.

Men’s Adventure Magazines


Here is a site guaranteed to chew up hours of your idle time.

My pal, Phil Stephensen-Payne, runs a page dedicated to the history of magazines. He recently put together a wing dedicated to the "true story" men's mags.

If you follow this link, you come to a page containing the names of over 150 such zines. Click on any title and be presented with a gallery of cover images like the one above.

Happy viewing!

Johnson Smith Catalog Item #9


Of course any lady would be thrilled to be presented with a "real dimond," especially if you told her it was her engagement ring, and then have a cap explode in her face!

From the 1930s catalog.
